Jul 4, 2017: From foster mom: Kingston is getting along well with the other dogs and he is good with the cats, although if he shows interest, he can be easily redirected. Kingston also knows, "go- lay-down, stay (most of the time), no. He has great house manners. He's a real gem!
May 29, 2017: Kingston is looking for an awesome family to live out his golden years. He is house trained. Kingston knows basic commands. He does pull on leash so a harness may help with that. He is eager to please and very loving. His evaluator said: "Kingston loves the tennis ball. He was a little shy at first, but relaxed quickly. He is very playful and engaged. He is a fun loving senior pup." No cat history so cats are unknown. He is good with other dogs. He previously lived with young and older children, and he is approved for kids 8 and up.
Kingston is an 11 year old yellow neutered male lab. He is current on vaccinations. He weighs 65 pounds and needs to gain around 5-8. See medical tab.
Kingston was an owner surrender due to not enough time to care for him.
